Your website rocks. I think you have saved me like a million hours of crying over my first Grad School paper.”

Thank you so much for creating this website.
EasyBib became slowly so unbearable with ads, and then when it became acquired by the evil Chegg
I lost hope and thought I'd have to cite things manually.
As a student who just wants to get assignments done quickly and easily, you've helped me and everyone else.
I can’t thank you enough for not only making an easy alternative to RefME that I used to treasure as a student who needs to write frequently, but also making it free, you’re truly a saint. Keep doing what you’re doing.”

I honestly can’t even express how happy I was to come across Citationsy!
I’m Gillian, an MA International Relations student at the University of Kent.
Whilst I was doing my undergrad in Politics I was using Refme.
I believe it was bought out by CiteThisForMe and things just took a horrible turn. I’m sure you’ve come across it yourself so I won’t need to explain why it’s so bad 😂
But back to your platform, I love it!
So clean, simple and straightforward and even the fact that I can drop you a quick message is so lovely - not an experience you get everyday.”

Thanks for this wonderful initiative.
It quite reduces stress and time wastage.”

I am a medical professional (cardiologist). I find that Citationsy is excellent! A very useful tool!”

When I found Citationsy, it was out of desperation.
EasyBib had done something to their site that made it difficult to access with my screen reader.
(I'm totally blind.) And I was just finished writing a paper, and I needed to create a references page right the heck now. Well, I panicked.
All the bibliography creation services out there seemed to have been bought out by the same company, and they were all alike.
Well, what was I going to do? I had a paper due by midnight and I had to have a list of references.
It was through persistence and google that I finally located this tool, and it works very well with screen reading technology. Thanks for creating something that doesn’t suck, that blind college students can actually use!
